Are there any error messages on the screen?
It could be a software problem or overheating. To isolate the problem, then try the following:

1. Restart the computer and tap F8 until you see the options to boot to safe mode.
2. Highlight safe mode using the arrow keys and hit enter.
If it goes in without any problem, then do a system restore.
Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
Select a restore point. Make sure that it's a date when you had no problem yet.
If the computer does not go into safe mode, then it's a sure overheating issue. It just need some cleaning. Bring it to a technician to make sure that there are no defects with its fans.

If you have any questions, please drop me a line.

SOURCE: My PC won't run with ac /dc power!

Hello. There is a hardware failure with the laptop not the AC charger. AC chargers have some range of protections of their own. If the power requirements of the laptop are bigger then what the charger can handle, the charger will turn off. Also other parameters can bring the charger offline. In your case, you have a problem with a small chip, the battery charge controller unit, witch regulates the amount of current required to propperly charge the battery. When this thing fails, the charging requirements for the battery are reported rong and the AC charger is forced to give more power then necesary. This results in disconnection of the AC charger ( an internal fail safe of the AC charger) and the laptop to swich back to battery power. When the laptop is turned off, it can charge the battery because the power requirements are low, having all processor, main board, hard disk etc turned off. Therefore the AC charger can handle the load. However you will need to have it checked by a service center as it is a hardware fault. Both AC charger and laptop needs that check. The charge controll circuit needs to be replaced probably. It will be a somewhat expensive repair. Don't buy any other battery untill you have the laptop checked. For more aditional info please post back. PS. Sorry for my bad english, I am from Romania, it is pretty hard for me to explain tehnical stuff in english.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite M65-S909 laptop will not start

I had the same thing happen when I was fiddling with the 9092 monitor refresh rate. The video circuit had a few episodes of video switching and the system shut down never to wake again. I figured it was connected to this circuit but I couldn't fix it. I bought a new one but I haven't tried to recreate the problem:-|

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 7720 shut down, no power light,

The laptop's AC power jack is probably damaged. All you have to do is put the fork aside :D, unsolder the old power jack and solder the new one in. If you are not good at soldering you can get it done by a qualified professional. Its a 5 minute Job and a pretty inexpensive repair.

I recently took my good battery out of my 04 gsxr 1000 and tried crank another bike with it.. The bike wouldn't crank.. So I put it back in my gsxr and it would turn over but no fire then after turning it...

The electrical problem of the other bike could've very easily fried your battery, too. It could have enough to turn over but that's it. Take your battery out, take it to a car parts store, have them load test it. It could just need a reconditioning and charged up.

Hi is any one over there? I have Acer Aspire 4736 with XP pro OS, but I forgot my bios password. Can you help

in my experience, the best way to reset a bios password is to open it up, pull out the cmos battery for 3 min, and boot it up. it should say "password disabled". turn it off, put the cmos batt. back in, and boot. it should work now.

0xd000001e and subsequent black screen

The easiest way is to hit F10 right after the Acer splash screen. This will take you into recovery mode on the laptop. Then just do the Reset to Factory Default. This will put everything back to the way it was when you purchase the laptop. It does this from the recovery partition.

Blank Screen on Garmin C330

It took a nap...

Waking up your c330...

If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers
